16 Sep The Gold Standard: Why Aquagold Enhances Microneedling
Microneedling was first used over 100 years ago when it was discovered that controlled micro-injuries stimulated collagen production. It worked wonders in helping veterans recover from war wounds, and it didn’t take long to realize how well it could work in the cosmetic world, too. Microneedling has long been a staple at RefinedMD, but this treatment has evolved over the years—and now we have Aquagold Fine Touch. It takes microneedling to the next level so you can get better results faster.
There are countless warnings against DIY, at-home “microneedling” devices and it is unfortunate that there are many “microneedling kits” on the market. Remember that unless any type of microneedling is performed by a professional, you either won’t get the best results or you could permanently damage your skin. Whether you’re looking into “traditional” microneedling or Aquagold, stick with the pros so you can rest easy while you undo years of skin damage.
The Midas Touch for Skin
Different professional-grade microneedling devices come with different needles. With Aquagold, the needles are 24-carat, patented, and gold-plated to maximize comfort. They are also hollow needles, which is a big departure from microneedling of yore. This allows the needles to directly deliver hand-selected serums and ointments deep into your skin’s tissue. It was previously recommended to get microneedling before a facial because microneedling literally opens up the skin (albeit very briefly), which would allow topicals during a facial to really get to work. But why opt for a two-step process when Aquagold does it all in less than 30 minutes?
All Aquagold applicators are disposable and single-use, with needles designed to reach ideal depths of the dermis. Your provider will work with you to determine the best ingredients to fill the gold needles with, from vitamins and hyaluronic acid (HA) to enzymes and even tiny amounts of Botox. Aquagold is fast, easy, and really works. Unlike traditional microneedling, which took weeks to start showing results, with Aquagold you’ll see some results right away thanks to the topicals infused in your skin. However, results will continue to improve in the days and weeks following your treatment.
What’s “Old” is New
Delivering topicals into the skin isn’t exactly new. After all, Botox and dermal fillers are such deliverables. Aquagold is unique because it combines such injections with the best microneedling best practices. If you get Botox injections, you might get a few needle injections—and they can sometimes be uncomfortable. This isn’t enough to kick-start collagen production like microneedling does, and the goal of traditional injections isn’t to create micro-channels at just the right depth and width to turn back the clock.
Clients are amazed by how comfortable Aquagold is, and most appointments can easily fit into your lunch hour. Plus, you can include multiple ingredients in the needles, sending a variety of injectables into the appropriate skin layer to achieve results you want. The screw thread needles technology ensures that ingredients are delivered while the “wound” closes up shortly afterward. It’s no muss, no fuss, and all beautiful.
Getting the Gold
Just like traditional microneedling, Aquagold is suitable for men and women with all skin tones and types. The only contraindication is open wounds, lesions, or breakouts. You should wait until skin has healed before pursuing any injectable treatment. Aquagold can also be used to treat virtually any skin condition including scarring, lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and melasma, and much more. Additionally, Aquagold is so precise that it can even be used close to the eye area and around the mouth.
For skin tightening, plumping, and turning back the clock, it’s easy to see who the gold winner is. You can add Aquagold to your routine treatments, replace any existing microneedling appointments with it, and continue to see results improve as you make Aquagold part of your regimen. Most clients get Aquagold treatments every 4 – 8 weeks to sustain results. You can find out more about Aquagold, including complementary treatments, by connecting with RefinedMD today.
